By definition the word Obscure means unknown and mysterious. My initial approach to this series was to apply thinned out paint and pour it on top of unprimmed canvas (similar to Pollock and Frankenthaler). Multiple layers of paper, canvas and found objects are then applied.
After producing several paintings I struggled with a title for the series. I had a notebook covered with possibilities. Then one day a visitor was in the studio looking at the new work and mentioned how the black paint obscured the other layers....and thus the Obscure series was named.
